Supplier of organic and speciality foods, Kallo Foods, is to acquire Whole Earth Foods to consolidate its strength in the healthy eating grocery sector.

Kallo, part of the Tree of Life Europe group, will inherit a product portfolio that includes organic breakfast cereals, peanut butters, preserves and soft drinks.

Kallo’s chairman and MD Chris Lane said: “An important new string has been added to the Kallo Foods bow. Whole Earth is a brand with real heritage and had strong awareness right across the UK consumer base. It retains the potential for much greater things in the future and as part of Kallo Foods it will realise that potential.”
